United States (US) President Donald Trump is visiting India with his wife Melania Trump. The preparations for their reception are in full swing.
Donald Trump will visit India on February 24 and 25.
During this two-day visit, he will travel to Delhi and Gujarat.
For this, a ‘Kem Chho Trump’ program will be held in Ahmedabad, just like the event in Houston in the style of ‘Howdy Modi’.
In Gujarati, ‘Kem Chho’ means ‘how are you?’
Through this program, the US President will address the Indian people and during this time Narendra Modi will accompany him.
But one thing that is being mentioned most in India right now than all this program is a ‘wall’.
A wall is being erected in Ahmedabad to hide a slum lying on President Trump’s convoy, which its residents are opposing.
The slum is en route from the airport to Sabarmati Ashram.
The ‘wall’ to hide the slum
Indian local newspapers reported on Thursday that a seven-foot-high wall is being constructed to “hide” the slum dwellers along the main road in the area. The wall will be built about half a kilometre in length.
According to media reports, US President Donald Trump’s convoy will pass through the Sarnia Vyas area linked to the Andhra Bridge in Ahmedabad. About 2,500 people live in this slum.
Locals say the government wants to hide poverty so that Donald Trump can not see the slum.
A local woman said, “If this wall is not here then when President Trump passes here, he will know about our problems but the government wants to hide the truth from him.”
The visit is important for President Trump in the wake of the upcoming presidential election in the United States.
This is President Trump’s first visit to India. Political and economic experts believe that there may be some economic agreements between the two countries on the visit.
